Chants would be a fine thing

Anyone admit to having music in their collection which could legitimately be called New Age?

Come on, admit it.

I have lots of chant music. Is it new age? er, it's mostly from the 11th to 14th centuries, which doesn't seem very new to me.
I'm an improbable new-age traveller in any case.

I believe I still have a copy of The Yardbirds' 'Still I'm Sad'.
They claimed it was based on a Gregorian chant. Does this count?

It seems I have. According to my music player the following are 'New Age' :-

Kitaro - 2 tracks - 'Shimmering Horizon' and 'Mirage'
Karunesh - Heart Chakra Meditation
V/A - 'Caribbean Shores (Relaxation & Meditation with Music and Nature)'

I like to listen to Kitaro / Karunesh when knuckling down to a spot of vigorous aura-cleansing, and the Caribbean Shores album's possibly the best diuretic I know.

I love New Age music - and feel absolutely no shame!

Go listen to George Winston (piano), and be mellowed beyond belief... :-)

or William Ackerman (acoustic guitar), ahhhhh, bisto!

(Windham Hill is the place to go) oh Michael Hedges is classed as New Age?!
